This film is so wonderfully charming! It is very easy to relate to in many ways. The viewer could easily feel like their watching a movie about a married couple that are both older than they are. But, the viewer also gets to see just how much fun they have together and how much their life is more than just their jobs. The couple seems to be having a great time in all the right places, as well. The character of Laura Dern is brilliant, especially since her character is almost completely unknown to me. This is one of my favorite movies of the year!

When I saw that this movie is about a transvestite in Singapore, I had to see it. I am so glad that I did. This movie is unique, funny and lovable, with a terrific story about a girl who knows her place in life, but she must do something about it. At the end, she finds it. Overall, it is a feel-good movie.

This is a classic rom-com about an apartment dweller and a vivacious housewife. The narrative focuses on the beginnings of the tale as they encounter each other. As the story progresses, they develop a relationship that becomes romantic and fun and eventually matures into something more. I was pleasantly surprised by the romantic and fun feel that the film brought to the screen. I found the characters engaging and likable, and the movie's very sweet atmosphere provided a suitable contrast to the somewhat grim situation. The situations the characters find themselves in are not so much interesting or interesting, but rather somewhat amusing. This is not to say that I found the story too predictable or that it was entirely predictable. The characters found themselves in situations that are completely realistic and they were dealt with in an effective manner. I think that the narrative also provides a balance between romantic and comedic parts, and I found the story to be humorous and entertaining. The jokes are not so much that I would laugh out loud, but rather that I found them to be very funny, amusing and amusing. Overall, this movie was really enjoyable to watch. It is filled with romance and humor, it is somewhat tragic, but it does not feel manipulative. The characters are likable, the story is enjoyable, and the development of the story was fine. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend this movie to those who like romance and comedy. I really enjoyed this movie and think that it would be a nice treat for your evening.

What a fun and cute film this is. I first heard about it while I was in junior high school and decided to watch it. The kids at school that I was with laughed the most at the way Michael Cera and his best friend were acting. They were so funny and I never thought they would do anything like this. I first rented it back then and I loved it. Even though I loved it I've watched it hundreds of times and it always makes me laugh. It's nice to have a comedy that is so realistic, but at the same time a bit ridiculous. This is a film that really makes you laugh and is very fun to watch. You can't help but laugh and be impressed with the situations they get into. It is very well acted and directed and the chemistry between the actors is also good. There is a lot of humor and they make sure that the characters are not too cliche. Overall, this is a funny film that will make you laugh and you won't forget it!

I'm not a big fan of musicals, but I enjoyed this movie. I'm not a huge fan of Jude Law, but he was excellent in the movie. I'm not really sure what the main theme of this film was, but it was just great. It was funny, it was sad, it was everything. The only complaint I have is that it was too short. The beginning is very beautiful. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a romantic comedy with a great message. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good musical.

Being the first feature to be shot on the set of the historical movie festival Elle. Elle in itself is the finest showcase of the year's best cinematography and at the same time the documentary festival of Spain, who put on a festival of cinema that is often derided and simply ignored by the critics. Elle is best described as an investigation of the unbearable isolation of a group of women, who all suffer from a broken spirit. There is an extraordinary realism of their lives. "Seagull", written and directed by the amazing Laura Martin, is a coming-of-age story about the two sisters, one of whom has just suffered a disastrous divorce. She has three children, two of which she does not see often, and has become depressed and withdrawn. She finds the relationship between her sister and her estranged husband intolerable, and everything seems to have gone downhill. But then the girl meets a charming young man, who seems to have a strong connection with her sister, and she begins to feel a little bit better. This is a very slow film, which takes an hour to get to the best moments of its narrative. And while we are at it, we have to be patient as well, as we are not only looking at the lives of the two sisters, but they are also looking at each other. Watching the film is almost a religious experience. These two sisters are being interviewed in a beautiful music montage. The montage is so perfect that it might just be the best thing I have ever seen in a film. The next time I watch it I will change the volume a little bit, as I won't need a lot of music to tell me what's going on. And that would be a great thing to do. The soundtrack is also very good. I liked it, though I would have liked more Spanish music. The lead singer of the band that does the soundtrack for the film, Ismael Manera, does a wonderful job as well. He is an actor's actor, who is the perfect person for such a difficult role. The girl, one of the characters we see, is also a beautiful, talented woman, but we cannot help being sad when we see her, and when we do not see her we are disappointed. They have given her a nice role, but she does not seem to have much of a role in the film. She seems to be an afterthought, if you know what I mean. But the film's strength is the story itself, which is so much better than a typical docudrama. You would think that the film would be boring,

There are so many unheralded gems that are being passed through the system that it is almost impossible to find.and by this I do not mean overlooked gems, I mean gems that are out there but just not known, even by people who are fans of the genre. This movie was one of those. I got the DVD for free, and I'm not an AFI member or a Cinema Blend member, but I bought it. I gave it a shot, and was very impressed. I know the AFI of America members have things like Cinequest, etc. that they look at in order to see all of their favorites, and this movie is in that same category. There are many other good films of this type, but this one ranks right up there. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a good chick flick, but is not willing to sit through much of the 3 hour runtime. I give it a B+.

Seagull (2005) * (out of 4) An art student from New York gets sent to the Philippines to work with a geologist to make a picture of a skeleton which has been stolen by a rich family from Malaysia. When she arrives in Manila she discovers that she doesn't want to work in the Philippines as she has grown to hate it and wants to leave. As her advisor says "there is no point to being there", but the rest of the cast agrees and they are all happy to go. The film is set in an Asian beach town where a couple of lifeguards keep their lives in a very strict fashion and other characters fall into the same category. The story is basically about one of these lifeguards who is in the middle of a relationship with the man who is rich and is not very popular. As time goes on he starts to do things to his body that seem strange to him and the rest of the cast all agree that he is a disgrace to the profession. From the start of the movie I knew I was in for a long movie and it does take a long time before anything really happens. The first half of the movie is about a close up shot of the lifeguard. The idea that he is sad and that his life is a complete waste isn't interesting at all and that's when the main plot begins. The ending is actually pretty good, but the plot never really grabs you. At some point I wondered if they were trying to make a movie about a man who was unhappy in his life and this movie was trying to figure out what the most interesting thing to do with this is. The big problem is that the main story has already been told in one of the earlier movies that have been released in the past few years and the audience knows that at some point he will have to do something about the situation. The actor who plays the lead in the movie is also played by Joe Swanberg. Swanberg is a pretty good actor and in this movie he has a really interesting role to play. He is one of the few people who can play a character that is supposed to be a little bit evil and he is able to pull it off. I was also pleased to see a few familiar faces in the cast such as Peter Sarsgaard, Elizabeth Banks and Bonnie Hunt. These actors are familiar because they all play characters in films like this and they all do a good job. I did think that the lead character of John Corbett did a better job than most of the other cast. The film is a good movie and it could have been a lot better if it was a little

I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of the musical genre, so it was a pleasant surprise to watch this film, because it was entertaining. This is also a movie I could watch over and over, and my friends have been telling me to buy the DVD for months. There is some nice songs and songs by Queen, and Elvis Presley's lyrics are here, so if you like Queen, you will love this film. It is a little bit too long, but then again, it is not supposed to be over and over again, so I am guessing that most people would like it. I am not giving it a 9 because it is over the top, but then again, I am a sucker for a musical, so it is worth watching. It is probably the best musical I have seen in the last ten years.

The 'Seagull' is based on the novel by Emily Bronte, which is a much-acclaimed novel, but how many people have read the book? I hope the people who read it won't be too disappointed. The story is based on the French story "The Seagull". It is about a woman, Mrs. Georges, who is lonely in her marriage, as she is too old for her husband and it is becoming increasingly difficult for her to have sex. One night she decides to kill him and make his new wife happy. She does that by shooting him in the back of the head, and then, using her imagination, tries to make his new wife happy with a tale of a seagull. Well, it's a bit predictable, but it is still a great read. I think most people will enjoy this film. It has a very good performance from Richard Curtis as the director, and I think he did a wonderful job. Richard was once considered to be a mediocre actor, and his performances as the director in this film and in the Oscar nominated 'The Fighter' show that he is a great actor and very underrated. The film is filmed in a documentary style, so it has a documentary-like feel to it. I was very impressed with that. I thought it was a very good way to approach the story. I think it gives you a different look into a story that most people will know and will not understand. One of the most important things I appreciated in the film is the natural scenery. It is very interesting to see Paris in a documentary. I love how they filmed in the mountains, but also how they filmed in the park and around the buildings. That really adds to the film. I think that is one of the best things about it. I also liked the accent and the way they portrayed Paris. I know that it is a lot to ask to have that, but I really appreciated that. Some people thought the accent was weird, but I think it really added to the film. If you are a fan of Richard Curtis, then you will enjoy this film. I think the main reason I enjoyed this film is because of Richard Curtis. He is a great actor and he was very good in this film. You can really see his talent. I thought it was an excellent film, but I can see why some people might not enjoy it. But I enjoyed it very much.

I'm not sure how I feel about this movie. I'd say that it is great because it's a wonderful and insightful portrayal of a relationship that has been going on for a long time. I think that the director and co-writer probably had a nice view of what relationships were like before people were having kids and relationships were becoming more commercialized. However, that doesn't mean that the movie doesn't tell a rather depressing story. The only times that I felt that the movie made me feel good were the scenes where it was showing a family deal with things that were unplanned and, in a sense, the ones where it was showing the typical middle-class family's first and only problem. I thought that the performances were very good by the leads. James Franco and Justin Theroux do very well as a couple that are constantly going through hell. Although I have to admit that I don't think that I would want to see this movie more than once. The director and co-writer have done a good job with this movie and it's worth watching. A 7 out of 10

When I first heard about this film I had no idea what to expect. It had been advertised as being a romantic comedy with "funny" moments. I went with an open mind, wondering if I would enjoy it. My friend who was also into these kind of films recommended I watch this and I did. Although I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies, I still thought this one was funny and cute. The film stars Nick Swardson, who I knew from his work in TV. His character is a womanizing, bumbling lawyer who finds herself attracted to a young guy, but because of his job, he can't date anyone. So he decides to take a risk and adopt a young girl. He's not sure whether to give her up, and has to make a decision to decide how he feels about this woman who he didn't know. He also has to decide if he should end up with her or her aunt. The film is full of cute moments and fun to watch. I found it very entertaining. There were also a few scenes that were surprisingly sad, which I found quite sad. It's a great film to watch with your family or to go out with your friends and have a good laugh.

A very fine film. A thoughtful movie about a man who has achieved many things and now we learn of his one fatal flaw - a way of thinking that produces his own demise. This isn't a story about the circumstances of his death. The movie takes place over a relatively short period of time, and that is when the protagonist thinks and acts in a manner that makes it likely that he will die. As a result, he goes from thinking and acting in a way that makes it likely that he will die, to thinking and acting in a manner that makes it unlikely that he will die. His reasoning is that he will have plenty of time left to have many children and a good living. The movie's main concern is to show us the one way of thinking that is likely to make that possibility less likely. The movie reveals the consequences in a way that is understandable to the audience, and yet not too damaging. The movie explores the consequences of the (supposed) conventional thinking, and shows us that conventional thinking can have devastating consequences. I'm not sure that I completely agree with the movie's conclusion. The big negative was that the movie was supposed to be like a documentary film, and it was. I think that the documentary footage was more effective and used in a way that was more meaningful than the rest of the movie. I think that the movie did not have that much to do with the truth of the facts. I also think that the movie was more effective as an artistic expression of a certain form of conventional thinking, and less effective as a documentary about those facts.

I thought this movie was better than the first one. I think the character of Greta was developed much better and was played very well. It was funny at times and was kind of a darker movie. I like all of the actors in the movie. I think they did a good job with the roles they had and they really made the movie their own. I think that Sam Rockwell was really good in this movie. He did a great job and played the part of the person he was supposed to be. I also thought Jennifer Garner was very good in this movie and played the part of the person she was supposed to be. The other actors did a very good job also. The story in this movie was also very good. I think that there was a lot of depth that was done to the story. The acting in this movie was really good. I thought that the story was very interesting and the plot was very good. I think that the characters in this movie were very well played and the movie was very good. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good story and likes to see a great story come out of it. I think that everyone will be able to enjoy this movie and I think that the people that don't like the original movie will probably enjoy this one.

First of all, this film is very funny. Sure there are some less than brilliant parts. This is a comedy. This is not the "I just want to make a point." comedy I had wanted from the start. The movie is done in the same style of a Woody Allen movie (which I loved in my youth). The transitions from one scene to another is done so quickly and cleanly that you forget this was a comedy. It makes you fall in love with the characters. If you are a Woody Allen fan, you will love this movie. If you are not a Woody Allen fan, you will love it. It's one of my favorite movies, and I highly recommend it to everyone. - 8/10

I love movies and I think this movie was a great choice for me to rent, it was in the top ten movies I have watched since I was a little girl. One of my favorite aspects of this film is how it is filmed, it is almost like a documentary. I could not get enough of how the script was written and how it was directed. However, I do have a few problems with this film. The most obvious of which is that there is some sexual content that I would have found disturbing. Although I was not particularly offended by it, I do feel that it could have been edited to make it more acceptable for an adult. I will say that it is a very interesting movie and it certainly deserves a spot in my collection. Another very serious issue is that I do not know what it was about. I think that the amount of money that was used for this movie was almost too much, as it did not seem to make sense. Another problem is the acting in this movie. I thought that John Travolta and John Malkovich were very convincing, but I really do not think that I liked any of the other actors. I would have preferred to see a different type of actress in the lead role. In summary, this is a wonderful film that should have gotten better ratings because it is not for everyone. If you like romantic movies and you want to see a good one, I recommend you rent this film.

You'll find me wondering how many more times I'll have to sit through this movie before I get it. The story is sort of dated but I enjoyed it. I thought the actors did a pretty good job considering what was on the page. And the music was great. The movie is a little too long but it doesn't matter because it is a great story. The costumes and locations were also good. Don't miss this movie.

The drama-adventure "The Seagull" tells of a California couple that suffer a tragedy as their beloved pet pigeon is lost. A brave, and determined young man decides to take it upon himself to find it. He digs in the deepest parts of the desert and for two years, does everything to get it back. The film is filled with colorful characters, humor, and a delightful soundtrack. The director of this film, Adam Shankman, does a nice job of balancing the drama and humor, and, yes, the story does run a bit long. This is just one of those films that is worth watching at least once, regardless of whether or not you like it.

I was hoping for something a little more melodramatic than the aforementioned "Blue Jasmine" and this one is definitely closer to it. It's not an 'everyday life' film but not what you'd expect either. The characters are all interesting and funny. It's not a very heavy drama but you can't help but laugh and/or be sad when something does happen. I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews on IMDb for this film. It's not "some great Oscar-winning film", it's just a comedy. If you have a mood or a taste for an average movie, this is definitely not a bad choice. I'm not a big fan of movies like "Blue Jasmine", "Under the Tuscan Sun", "Diary of the Dead", but if you like to laugh and have a good time, I recommend this one.

Caught this at a theater showing. Disappointing to see such a good movie ruined by commercialism. It was well acted, but the dialogue was shallow and the script was devoid of humor. The entire cast was great, including a fine Christian Bale. The direction was restrained and gentle. I think I was watching an art film. I don't know how the guy from "Blair Witch" wound up with this deal. But he had it coming.

I read the Seagull in England, and I thought it was great! Great acting, great story, great cast! I love the Scottish accents, and I would love to see it translated to the USA. (Have I mentioned the Scottish accents? I love them too.) Now for the bad things: (And they're a lot less annoying than the good things!) First, this movie doesn't seem to have a clear story, so I think there is some research to be done. The plot is NOT clear. A bird escapes from a zoo and is taken to a secluded cottage, where he/she gets to learn the English language. However, the first character (ie. Professor Plum) speaks with a Scottish accent. It's a bit confusing, but I have no idea what this is supposed to be about. Also, the characters don't seem to know how to do anything. They can't use a rake, they can't cook, they can't ride a horse, they can't do anything except look droll and be droll. Is it supposed to be some kind of movie about the English language? I don't think so. However, the characters do change accents, and they seem to use it as a kind of metaphor for the character. I think that would be the same in a movie about the Scottish language, though. So in summary, the characters are confused, but I think that explains their lack of character development. The plot is a little unclear, and the language is somewhat annoying. I've seen a few reviews complaining about the Scottish accents, but I think they're supposed to be the same accents as the British in this movie. I think that would be the same in a movie about the Scottish language. I would still watch this movie, just not for the Scottish accents. The actors do a good job of communicating with one another, and it's so worth a look. I'd love to see it on the big screen.

I found this film to be absolutely amazing. I loved the characters and the emotions portrayed. The performances were very well done, but of course, what made the film so believable was the young actors. They were so believable in their roles, and in the way they acted. I hope that they do more films like this one in the future. I know that this film was an inspiration to many people, especially people that struggle with mental illness or other difficult times in their lives.
